I think it's too much to expect Will to see these warning signs. Nick's behavior is well within the range of showing concern.

Yeah, I didn't mean tending to the baby was the priority, as of course there is no physical baby there to tend to. I meant dealing with the fallout of the announcement, and the handling of the "baby" situation, to put it a little crudely, if that makes sense. Addressing what has just happened, focusing on the decisions he has made regarding the life he has created. It makes absolute sense that he would want to find Sonny, I wouldn't have expected him not to - it's the man he loves whom he has hurt, and Will realizes this and is scared. Makes sense. But in light of what has just been revealed, and the reality in which Will now finds himself, I don't think exposing this truth and allowing it to just exist there was the best handling of the situation. And perhaps why Lucas was insistent that Will address this first before looking for Sonny.
But shouldn't his conversation with Sonny fall under the "handling the baby situation" umbrella? If Wilson is as serious as they think they are, which as 21or 22 year olds, they probably aren't, this situation would have a larger impact on Sonny than the random family members who were assembled, unless Will is gong to be counting on them to help raise the baby, which is possible.
What Will should have done was stay and face the fall-out and explain himself to his family. He should have stood up for Gabi, and he should be seeing some of the things that Nick is doing and saying are red flags that could mean that Gabi and the baby are in danger, especially since Gabi is supposedly his dearest friend and he loves her very much. (Since so many parallels are being thrown up, Will and Gabi as best friends and parents to a child is perfect since that has always been the role for Sami and Lucas that really showed the very best parts of them both.) That's what Sonny would have done. Will running after Sonny instead, however, was exactly what Will would do and did. I think it was written perfectly in character, and it would have been weird if Will had done anything else.
Will should've checked on Gabi, but she had a support system in place. Sonny did not.
